Bloedorn to Resign From Council
A city council member in La Crosse is resigning. Jim Bloedorn says he'll leave the council by next Tuesday. In his resignation letter to the mayor dated Monday, Bloedorn says he bought a house elsewhere in the district and plans to be moved in by next week. Bloedorn has served on the council for several years and has been a strong opponent to what he has often called the overuse of TIF district financing in La Crosse. Bloedorn has also been a strong ally of mayor Harter and has typically been one of the few voting to sustain Harter's numerous vetos.
